Rachel Platten

American pop star Rachel Platten, who scored an international hit with the anthemic “Fight Song”, was born May 20, 1981 in New York, New York. While she played piano and guitar growing up, she did not seriously consider a career in music until college when she sang in a friend’s band at a major music competition in Trinidad and Tobago. After moving back to New York she performed regularly and began making connections which led to 2011’s Be Here, which contained her first charting single, “1,000 Ships”. The buzz from that record got her signed to Columbia which issued Wildfire in 2016. The album contained “Fight Song”, an inspirational smash single that went top 10 in several countries and helped push the album to number 5 on the charts. She was awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Talk Show/Morning Program for her rendition of the song on an episode of Good Morning America. 2017’s Waves failed to match the previous LP’s success but did give Rachel Platten her fifth Adult Top 40 Airplay hit with “Broken Glass”. Her 2019 single with Tritonal, “Little Bit of Love” from their album U & Me went top 20 on the dance chart.
